The Secrets of Phra Pidta of Wat Uttamaram, Repek, Finally Revealed !

Phra Pidta of Wat Uttamaram was followed the traditional way of making Phra Phakhawan of Achan Long Phor Khron. Present wat abbot, Phra Khru Boon Tham is issuing of this limited hand made edition of Phra Pidta.

Associates with the 45th anniversary ( BE 2550 ) of Khron Paranibbana, Phra Khru Boon Tham ( Than Boon ) revealed to the public the traditional ways /methods of making Phra Pidta. These methods are using / following the same methods used by Tok Raja in those day. According to the Long Chei, the pidta was created for the fund rising purposes. The purpose of making this superb Phra Pidta was due to the lack of fund to complete the Chedi and cremation hall, Achan Long Phor Khron appeared in Than Boon dreams and had ordered Than Boon to create the this special phim of Pidta amulet to be rent out to the devotees.

The Achan Long Phor Khron’s traditional mould gadget was made of 2 pieces of wood which are connected with the hinge. There were two holes on the woods surface to place the Pidta mould, hinged woods with 2 holes to fit the Pidta mould, one on each sides. The Pidta mould was made of fibre.

These two pieces of woods were pressed together tightly by using hand to mould the Pidta. The moulded Phra Pidta was painted and coated with Black Janrakh Wax or Getah Rengas Hitam ( not the normal crystal clear rengas ) by local folks. Each Pidta was individually pressed and blessed by Than Boon then.

These traditional ways and processes were rather complicated than the modern ways. Which are using the moulding machine and the amulets were pressed and completed within a minutes compare to Long Phor Khron traditional ways. Than Boon spent around 30 to 45 minutes to complete each of the Pidta amulet. This is why Phra Pidta / Phakhawan from Wat Uttamaram is very special indeed.

Apart from this special phim of Phra Pidta. There were several phims of Phra Pidta / Phakhawan which were hand made, pressed and blessed personally by Than Boon or Chau khun Mit. In order to identify such special hand made amulets, there are some hand print marks on the reverse side of the Pidta amulets.

According to wat committee, a total of 300 pieces of this special phim Phra Pidta were made and the thambun for this pidta is RM 3999. The devotee who rent out this Pidta will be given away a tongkat too ( made of janrakh tree, which strike by lighting, a donation of amount RM699 if renting out the tongkat individually ). Do correct me if I’m wrong .

You can’t find this pidta on the wat shelves. If you are interested in, kindly contact and consult Than Boon personally. Why ? Should ask Than Boon……

as for me..... just merely sharing !

sadhu ! sadhu !
